When President Trump made his disparaging remarks about certain foreign countries, the media did what they always do. They played the race card. If a minority bombed the Capitol Building and Trump criticized his actions, he would be tagged a racist. But guess who has come to his defense? That would be Alveda King, the niece of Martin Luther King, Jr.
Trump has been hit with massive criticism following Senator Dick Durbin’s (D-IL) claim that he used a profane description of minority countries. As an aside, the other two senators in the room both said they never heard Trump make this remark. But that hasn’t kept most media outlets from reporting on the story as though the accusation was caught on tape. Three of the four men in the room say Trump did not say “it,” but because the one accuser’s story fits their narrative, the media reported it as fact. Great journalistic standards, fellas!
But I digress.
Back to Ms. King. In an appearance on Fox News, she called Trump’s critics “outrageous.” King said, “Racism is just a word that is being bandied about and thrown at the president unjustly. President Trump is not a racist.”
King also defended Trump’s general remarks, saying they were aimed at the governments of those countries, not the people. “Some of their own leaders have taken advantage of them,” she said.
She went on to say that it is “outrageous to call a man a racist who continues to acknowledge the significance of Dr. Martin Luther King. He puts his money where his mouth is.”
Commenting on Dr. King, Alveda said that if he were alive today, he would be a “pro-life activist.” She added, “He said the Negro cannot win if he is willing to sacrifice the futures of his children for immediate personal comfort and safety. Abortion, of course, forces us to do exactly that.”
“I really believe that if my uncle were here today, he would encourage us to find solutions to the problems, even women’s problems, and all problems, without having to do violence to babies in the womb. I am just convinced that he would agree with that,” King said.
